Q: How do I write a spiritual book?
A: Here’s how to write a spiritual book in 5 easy steps
Step One – Write the Main Question Your Book Will Answer
Every book has a purpose. It answers a question or solves a problem people have. For example, how do people offer forgiveness? Or how do I ask for forgiveness from someone I care about?
By starting with a question or problem in mind, the book will write itself. Craft a central question. Really think about it.
Back to the forgiveness question. Make it more specific. For example, how do I forgive my child after they lied to me? By narrowing down the focus, you make sure your question reaches a specific audience.
Here, you’re targeting people with forgiveness issues around parenting or staying in a relationship with them.
Step Two – Answer in One Sentence
It is important to answer the question in one sentence first. The answer is your roadmap to the whole book. Suppose you can’t answer the question in one sentence. Then you aren’t ready to start the book.
Step Three – Create An Outline of the Answer
No one wants to open a book that rambles without a sense of direction. The outline (or table of contents) tells the reader what direction the book is headed for. It needs to be logical. Chapter one leads to chapter two, and so on. Outline the whole book before you write.
Step Four – Each Chapter Needs a Spiritual Value
Write the four most important ideas you live by. What is your life philosophy? What do you value? Truth, love, integrity, telling the truth, getting as much as you can?
These are the core convictions of your spiritual journey that you much articulate. If you don’t know them right off the cuff, that’s okay. Make time and think deeply about what matters to you. Jot them down quickly.
You need to integrate these important values and convictions into your spiritual book.
Step Five – Find Sources to Support Your Answer
Now, it’s time to conduct your research. Get on-line and begin finding spiritual texts, books, poetry, and historical writings that will support your view. Check out the library. Just keep on reading.
You may be a beginner in your field. Don’t be discouraged. Trust your instinct to find relevant, contemporary content that supports your ideas.
